So I'm debating between these two mobos for my new rig http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131975 - micro atx or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132039 - mini itx
Now I'm not really sure what the micro atx offers that the mini itx can't do. As far as I can tell it is just an extra pci-e slot but I started thinking that sli/crossfire is kinda impractical in a mid-tower case anyway because of heat disbursement and how close the physical ports are on the micro atx board.
I don't really plan on doing video editing or intensive applications, just straight gaming/media hub
Does going micro-atx really give me any substantial advantages? Also this kinda matters because it decides which case I'm going with. I love the look of the Bitfenix prodigy cases but I've heard mixed reviews on the micro-atx style.
Thanks in advance and sorry for long post!
